It’s been a bit of a ride, huh?

Five years ago yesterday I started blogging. You can read about that here or here or here or here.

And each yeah it seems like I have less to say about it.

This last year has been a fucked up ride. If you’re reading you know a bit about it. If you haven’t been, feel free to. It’s been a terrible year for me creatively; I’ve written fuck-all, and I’m not seeing that get better yet. Blogging has fallen victim to all this, but so has every other form of self-expression I have.

Here’s to a change in all that.

To all you bloggers out there, write something. Come up for air now and then. Facebook and twitter and myspace ain’t enough.

For me – I have more to say; I don’t know why I’m having so much trouble saying it.

Meanwhile, tonight I go look at a sketch for my backpiece, and tomorrow I pick up my thruxton. Speed and pain, baby.

  1. Happy anniversary mister. 🙂 I am glad you are reaping some great rewards for all the work!

    My outlet anymore is Flickr. Doing the 365 Days project, and writing a bit every day. Something about being able to attach an image to the words–whereas with Blogger it would be just the words–has made a difference. Maybe it’s that the focus isn’t *just* on the words? Either way, yes, we all need an outlet, and 140 character status updates just aren’t enough.

  2. Five years? How in holy hell has it been that long? cripes. Wild ride.

    Here’s to the next five having less suck and more awesome.

  3. Well, thank god you’re out here in the ether, that’s all I can say. Happy Anniversary, babe!(Wood, indeed!)

    Speed and pain. An excellent motto.

    Eve

  4. I like the wild ride part. I’m still a blog slut… You just have to look harder to find where I am these days! Congrats on managing to keep yours in essentially one place.

    Want to hear about that bike of yours!
